Today is Saturday 23rd October

In response to my own 3TC challenge today
The day is overcast and chilly, but at least dry for the time being. We both had a pretty good night and Hubby’s appointment is this afternoon. The gunge is working a treat…….. but it’s not a pleasant one.  We shall be glad when this weekend is over.

In the thirty two years plus we’ve been together, the only time I’ve seen Hubby with face hair has been in a photograph. As hospitals prefer you to wear a mask like this ,
rather than our choice of this
his skin has resembled chopped meat and despite the use of barrier creams and moisturisers, the constant requirement to wear a 3 ply mask has taken a toll.
In desperation he has not shaved in the hope that a natural barrier will help in rectifying the problem. When we are wearing masks to shop, he wears the FFP3 design as that is away from his face and the issue is not so bad, but just one instance of wearing the cotton one, and he’s right back where he started.
I have never liked beards, but at the moment I’m all for it!

Hope your day is off to a good start.
Keep safe and take care everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Both my sons have grown beards during the pandemic. I’ve never been a big fan but they look nice and the mask irritation on the cheeks and chin are solved since are both required to wear them all day. Sparky only works part time so he hasn’t gone furry (thankfully because his beard is like a wire porcupine)! Sounds like the process of really diagnosing the health problem is finally underway. Good luck!
